/ Cairngorms midgies?
Specifically Beinn a' Bhuird.
Got attacked yesterday evening next to ciste gully nr the ski centre car park but wind was non existent.
Think if there is a breeze you might survive. Take a head net just in case
They are late coming, but they are beginning to really bite not helped by some pretty persistent still and humid weather. Not sure about Cairngorms specifically, but west coast was bad last week. However, a few people were swearing by this new stuff "smidge", and they definitely seemed less bothered than me!
Head net packed now I've just got to wait for the rain to go off.
